    the tailgate lock on my 2000 ML 430 has just given up the ghost

    wiring and are there any things to whatch out for!

    The trim is on poppers. Is the rest of the rcl working?

    Disconnect the catch mechanism at the lowest part of the tailgate then report back if the locking works.
    The auto release via the rcl on the key will not work once you have done this so don't worry!
    When I say disconnect I just mean pull the plug off
